Today’s post is a response to this week’s photo theme Partners.


I took this photograph in Amsterdam back in December 2013. It was nearly Christmas so the whole city was covered in festive lights and decorations. I was in a pub sheltering from the bitter cold when I snapped this picture of a couple having a quiet drink by the window.

What I really like about this image is the way the couple seem to be in ther own little world, disconnected from the bustle of people around them.  It makes me curious about who they are. Are they locals just visiting their regular drinking hole or are they tourists taking a break from sightseeing? Are they long time companions? Brother and sister? Or just two friends?

Partnership is something we all have in common, whether it be in love, work, friendship, and you can see it in everyday life, even among animals.



As always you can also follow me on Instagram for more photos and less writing.
